Maybe now everyone will stop kissing Morey's Ass. They will have the same team minus Asik and Lin, but now have to spend 15 mil on Parsons instead of 1 mil if they would of picked up his option. I'm just waiting for some to come out and say oh Daryl Morey just doing Parsons a solid. Way to go Bosh.
5 months, 1 week ago on Summer Thoughts: Thunder 103, Heat 98
I see all these blockbuster trades on here, but we don't need to do anything crazy. The Raptors will go into Tank a palooza with Ujiri at the GM position because right now they got 8th seed playoff potential. So what if we do a Perk, PJIII, and some draft picks for a Steve Novak and they got three guys we could take back (Landry Fields, Kyle Lowery, or Amir Johnson). Either one of those 3 guys would make the salaries match.

Man, I know you can't cry over spilled milk, but that shot at 2:53 in the video where you see KD, Russell, Harden, and Serge together makes me sad. A team of those 4 guys and Nick at the C would of been awesome. I wish I was going to the game tonight, just so I can watch Javale McGee make Shaqtin a Fool for the 49th time. That dude makes some of the biggest bonehead plays I have ever seen.

1 year, 5 months ago on Thunder select Alex Abrines with the 32nd pick
Hence my 1% leeway for lucky guesses and coincidence. Frequent poster: There was no rumors about the trade until it happened. No ESPN, Wojo, Lowe, Simmons, etc. I'm not throwing shade at Steve (smart dude evidentally) cuz a lot of people didn't see it coming, but when these "rumors" are flying around they are 99% BS.
1 year, 5 months ago on Thunder shopping Perkins along with 12 and 29?
I don't know. All of the deals that have gone down (the Green / Perk trade and the Harden trade) came from no where. I'm pretty sure Presti won't do deals with those yahoo gms who try to leak the trade. He stands firm and if you don't like it , jump off the bridge.
All of us know how the Thunder's front office does business, they don't say a dang word about anything to anybody. They don't even allow cameras in their workout facility. I'm pretty sure if someone does leak something, Presti will give them a set a concrete shoes to wear in Lake Hefner. Then mind trick us into thinking that person never existed. I will never believe or get my hopes up for any reported rumors. 99% of then untrue ( 1% left for mere coincidence and lucky guesses).
CJ hit 51% from three in his games before he got hurt or something absurd. Lamb is a good shooter but not that good.

Did notice , but I think Serge could keep people honest down there. Not saying he is close to TD but he can hit a midrange jumper, grab some boards , etc. We would execute the half court by putting KD on the block or a Russell drive to collapse the defense and swing the ball.
Plus being older and more experienced. Hopefully, coach Brooks willing, he would be ready to contribute sooner than later. Most of the other lotto guys will prolly spend most of their time in the d league. ie any big guy in the draft.
Alright, after watching that domination tonight and the Spurs playing small ball to kill Miami with 3's and assists. I'm all for getting CJ McCollum with the 12th pick or trading up a little to select him. Dude reminds me a lot of Gary Neal for the Spurs. Every time Neal plays against us I swear I think every open shot he shoots is going in. A lineup of Russell, CJ, Thabo (or Reggie or Lamb), KD, and Ibaka or Collison would be sweet. Spacing and 3s from everyone except Ibaka and Collison.
Basic minutes allotment for next year (240 total minutes in a game)
Westbrook: 36 mins (Same as last year)
Durant: 38 mins (Same as last year)
Ibaka: 36 mins (Being paid the big bucks, better get the big minutes too)
Sefolosha: 25 mins (a little reduced from last year, so HOPEFULLY not injured come playoff time.)
Perkins: 18 mins (Hopefully Coach will play him more or less depending on opponent but wouldn't count on it)
Collison: 22 mins (He needs more minutes than Perkins. Can play equal if not better defense and CAN DUNK)
Jackson: 25 mins (He deserves more time than last year. Can play alongside Russell.)
Thabeet: 8 mins (Same as Perkins. Play more or less depending on matchups).
Jones III: 12 mins (Needs consistent playing time to see if he is a player)
Lamb: 20 mins (Needs consistent playing time and more responsibility to see if he is a player)
Liggins: Back and forth to D-Leauge. Injury replacement for any guard.
12th Pick: Ditto
3rd string PG: Official celebration coordinator and Emergency PG.
29th and 32nd Pick : One of these will be a draft and stash player, prolly not using the 29th (Traded for something? Maybe combined with the 12th to move up a couple of spots.)
1 year, 6 months ago on Monday Bolts – 6.10.13
I think we could move up fairly cheap in this years draft if we wanted to. Trade the 12, 29, and PJ to either the Bobcats or Suns. No sure thing in this draft, so more picks and players that might pan out, and they will suck again next year for the Wiggins draft. We could get Oladipo, Len, or maybe McLemore if he drops. Then you could sign and trade Kmart for a decent C and the lineups would be. Westbrook, Thabo, Durant, Serge, and hopefully ceremonial starter only Perkins with Lamb, I think I like Mclemore the most for next year, Reggie, Nick and said C we traded for.
1 year, 7 months ago on What should the Thunder do with the 12th pick?
@okcprophet How do you propose we do this?
1 year, 7 months ago on Wednesday Bolts – 5.15.13
Him or Dieng from Louisville. Similar players. Same height and age.
I see a lot of people on here looking to get a Len or Olenyk. I know most Duke haters won't like this idea, but what about Mason Plumlee at 12 (or trade back) to replace Perkins. Good rebounder and finisher at the rim. Not a great offensive player, but it's not like any body they draft will get post ups on the block. Just think how many points and rebounds Perkins could average if he didn't have the hands of a clock and a 2" vertical. Then amnesty Perkins, sign a guard/forward for the MLE and I think we're set. Draft some Euros with the late picks.
@bmuelle22 I think Russell helped them design that shoe. From the crazy colors to the crazy pattern on the bottom of the shoe.
1 year, 7 months ago on Tuesday Bolts – 5.7.13
1 year, 7 months ago on Derek Fisher, playoff hero
@Fezzy @jlamb = kmart If Reggie continues to get better, we won't resign him (cost too much). Then we'll need a replacement and anyways Reggie and Fisher play together. You could stash the kid in Europe for another season then bring him over. He's from Germany.
Alright, even though we are in the midst of the playoffs I keep looking at this draft and seeing hardly anyone that could help the Thunder next year. I see a lot we need a big guy talk, but I think we should be OK with Collison, Ibaka, Thabeet, and I guess Perkins if you want to count him. The one person I am intrigued by that will be available at 13 is Dennis Schroeder. Lightning quick PG thats a good passer, decent mid range and outside shot, and an awesome on ball defender. In the Nike Hoop game he schooled the US point guards and fouled both of them out. Went for 16 pts. 6 ast and got a majority of his using the pick and roll (AKA the only Thunder play Scott Brooks knows). What do you guys think?
In reference to D. Mayberry's trade proposal earlier, why would we need J. O'Neal? Hopefully in the playoffs we just rotate Ibaka, Collison, Perk, and KD at the 4 and 5. If we are talking potential deals that could maybe help the Thunder, what about a P. Jones and Maynor for Vince Carter? Dude still has game and is a good veteran bench presence for the playoffs. Plus I think 3 million this year and next is cheap.
1 year, 10 months ago on New stats show off Durant and Westbrook’s offensive brilliance
@d21 he is a little short but is 240 lbs. and 7' 1" wingspan so he can maybe hold his own in the post and not just get shoved aside. I think he could be Carl Landry type of player. A bit undersized but effective in the paint and midrange.
1 year, 11 months ago on Kevin Durant named Western All-Star starter
Man after watching that game, I agree with a lot of posters that we could use a 3/4 to give us another defender against Lebron and give us a more versatile small ball lineup. I don't see us trading for one (ie LRMAM or Marion) but what do you guys think of Anthony Bennett of UNLV. He looks athletic enough to be good defender and has a good looking shot. Plus he's Canadian and we more diversification in our locker room :).
70 wins HAHA! Here's for hoping to make 40 and give your lotto pick to the Suns and be a year older.
Man I love watching the Lakers lose. I hate the Heat too, but since they are in the East they will make the playoffs if they win 15 more games. The Lakers on the other hand got all the hype this year and in the West. With each loss Lakers fans panic more and more and their playoff chances shrink with each loss. THUNDERUP!
My observation, for the little that its worth, is the screen being a major part of our offense and our struggles against Miami. Miami puts Lebron on Perk and then switches every screen he sets. Norris Cole could end up guarding Perk and he'll try to post him up. In my book, any Perk offensive possession is a win by the defense. With that said against most teams, if they try to switch their big onto KD or WB then its a win for us. Man Perk is almost just obsolete vs. Miami because of Lebron and their small ball.

1 year, 11 months ago on Nuggets vs. Thunder: Pregame Primer
Who cares if Manti Te'p lied or didnt' lie about is "girlfriend". I believe the ones that should be chastised for this is ESPN/ABC, Sports Illustrated, and other various news outlets for not doing their research before coming out with this story. When was the last time a celebrity/athlete lied or falsified the past to gain their 15 mins. Everyday on every reality show?
@d21 @MattMooreCBS No way we would even entertain this dude. He's a good player not a great one like he thinks he is. He reminds me of a Tracy McGrady or Terrel Owens. "Love me some me".
@justin_mia That and blocking out Faried and McGee. Those guys just live for offensive rebounds and McGee loves to try to jump over you and tip it out.
My only problem with this article is look at the bigs mentioned in the article (Vucevic, Boozer, Noah, M. Gasol, Randolph, Millsap, and Jefferson). All of those bigs are pretty good offensive players (i.e. meaning if they get an offensive rebound they know what to do with it) and are more mobile than Perk (i.e. chase down boards). With Perk on the floor, our offense gets bogged down, because we are playing 4 vs. 5 against Miami, and his defense isn't really a plus because Miami has no real post threat. The only way i can see this playing 2 bigs at the same time plan working is playing Collison and Ibaka. Collison can guard their stretch 4 or at least not lose their man like Ibaka, and out rebound their smaller players.
1 year, 11 months ago on Maybe Scott Brooks has it right against the Heat?
Here is what I see. Coach Brooks has no confidence in our bench what so ever. He rides WB and KD for 40 mins a night or else we have real problem keeping up. I don't believe KMART is the answer, and the only way any rookie will contribute in the future is by getting minutes now. So below I have a proposal to offload KMART, Maynor, and give Dallas their 1st rounder back and/or give them ours for this next year. (Although the 66ers will be dissappointed by not getting a good player next year) In return, we receive Marion and Darren Collison. Provides bench help with D. Collison being the back up PG who can create, and Marion can guard anyone from Lebron, Kobe, B Griffin, etc. Allows Coach Brooks to play some vets and opens up a spot for J. Lamb to get some mins. Thoughts?
BTW, this is my 1st post, so don't blast me too bad.
